How can I be sure that you are a diverse and inclusive employer?

Ensure the company is an equal opportunity employer (EOE) that you feel comfortable working for. If you care about the way your employer acts in the world, this is the basic curriculum. Companies that do not embrace diversity are less hospitable and open workplaces, which can be a problem in the long run. Even if you do not belong to one of the diversity groups, you may still find this important. Use this question during the job interview to ensure that they match your criteria.

GOALS

Evaluate Diversity Measures in Place: This question can be used to actually dig out particular programs and measurements that the company has in place. What policies are available? How do they resolve conflicts? How do they ensure people are trained to handle a multi-cultural environment? Ask questions and see if the interviewer can give you actual practical measures.

Does the Company Believe in Diversity: If you belong to a diversity group, it is important to understand if the company values a diverse workforce. Based on what you hear from the interviewer, you should be able to evaluate how sincere their belief in diversity is. There is a big difference between having a diversity program in place to avoid law suits or to get the best results from your organization.

Scaring the Employer: Use this question to ensure that your criteria are matched, but don’t give the impression that you are not interested in this position. You are after all interviewing for it. If you feel the company has not done enough, you might choose to point this out, but use the right tone and way of articulating this. If you come across as offensive or aggressive, you will probably be disregarded since this might be the way you act in an everyday setting as well.
